If you have never come across a Top Ten Tuesday, it is a weekly feature hosted over on The Broke and The Bookish. They post a different top ten topic every week, it’s pretty awesome. All the cool kids are doing it.
This week’s topic is all about the Top Ten 2014 releases you are just can’t wait any longer for!
1. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. Like that wasn’t going to be obvious.
2.Untitled (The Darkest Minds #3) by Alexandra Bracken. Although it doesn’t have a title yet, or a release date, it is set for “sometime in 2014”. Here’s to hoping sooner, rather than later.
3. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Hopefully I’m all caught up by the time it comes out!
4. The Iron Trial (The Magesterium #1) by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black. The vague description is all we have, and I don’t even care. All you have to say is Cassandra Clare and I’m in.
5. Harry Potter Encyclopedia by J.K. Rowling. (I have heard this is happening in 2014, but I have also heard that it isn’t. I’m going to tell myself it is because it makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy) Not sure this needs explanation. Plus, all the royalties go to charity because Jo is a badass.
6. Rooms by Lauren Oliver. As far as I know, this is going to be a stand-alone, so hopefully it isn’t the trainwreck Delirium turned into. Plus I have been told that I need to read Before I Fall because it is amazing, so I’m guessing that her track record for stand-alone’s is already pretty good. Plus it’s about ghosts. I’m a sucker for ghosts. This is your last chance Oliver, prove me wrong please.
7. Rogues by Various Writers edited by George R.R. Martin. Okay, so really this is kind of misleading. I don’t really want to read Rogues, just one short story entitled How the Marquis Got His Coat Back by Neil Gaiman. He has been promising this story since not long after Neverwhere was released and readers started pointing out that the Marquis de Carabas appeared to get his coat back after it was assumed to have been lost, without explanation. He promised to explain it in a short story almost a decade ago. Luckily, I didn’t read Neverwhere that long ago, so I haven’t been waiting that long. Still, the prospect of anything new from Gaiman makes me happy 🙂
That’s about it for me! There are some sequels coming out in series that I have yet to start, such as Cress and Gods and Monsters. Hopefully I will get the prequels to those done soon so I can add those to the list!
